“Best family hotel I've ever been”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

The hotel is really beautiful. Surrounded by a large garden with plenty of countless old trees. In the courtyard of the hotel we ate dinner, which was tasty and varied, applause for cooks! The is always discreet courteous, always helpful no matter what happens - if your daughter bites a bee o if you search best places to visit. Rooms are beautifully decorated, and very clean. Towels changed regularly, and the service is always willing to help. Breakfast buffet was plentiful and rich, with a huge selection of Italian Meat, Cheese, own marmalades. In my opinion hotel and their employees deserves the highest estimation. I sincerely recommend to all, is an excellent place to relax.

Unfortunately we had a terrible experience at this place. We booked over the phone and were given a price of EU80 per night for the room. When we checked out we were told that there had been a mistake, it should have been EU80 per person. We finally agreed to pay EU120 per night to put an end to this unpleasant experience. The icing on the cake: while I waited for the boss to arrive to explain what had happened, I asked an employee if I could make a coffee using the nespresso machine available for the guests. "Yes of course," was the answer. On the final bill: an extra 95 cents for the espresso. Really?! Not a great way to create goodwill. In terms of the place itself, the rooms are not bad, they are clean and comfortable. The breakfast is average and although a swimming pool is advertised on the internet, the reality is more swamp than pool. Probably the worst bit - the cleaners banging loudly on the door and proceeding to open it - at 9.30 am. EU160 per night? Spend your money more wisely fellow travellers!

Great week there!
The staff was super, the food very nice and what can I say about their wine... :-)
I would not mind at all going there to stay another week like the one my wife and myself spent. I absolutely recommend it!

Tenuta del Fontino, a family-farm hotel with a horseback riding school and a modern winery, Massa Marittima Toscana Italy We invite you to spend a great holiday in our antique family-farm in Tuscany. La Tenuta del Fontino is located in the town of Massa Marittima, just a few miles from beautiful Accesa lake, which supplies water to our property and private lake. The property covers 700 hectares, of which about a quarter are fields, meadows and olive groves. Moreover, we own 16 hectares of vineyards - our pride and glory. The rest of our land is covered with the Mediterranean bush. We offer you a vacation in the true and authentic environment of Italian countryside, where you have a chance to taste the excellent Italian cuisine and hospitality based on a true family atmosphere and a high-skilled service. We offer beautiful rooms and suites, a rich continental breakfast buffet, a huge garden, a swimming pool with a magnificent view, a horseback riding school, an open-air breed of Tuscan pigs named Cinta Senese, our wines, tranquillity and countless attractions - all this and much more is waiting for you ! The sea is only 15 minutes away by car: Follonica received "The Blue Flag" award for the last 14 years, thanks to its well-maintained beaches with uncontaminated and clear waters. Vicinity of our hotel are the so-called Metalliferous Hills, where the mountains reach 1000 meters. In this vast area there are many fantastic trails and paths, to go on a walk, on horseback or mountain bike. And finally, an ice cream or an aperitif on the famous square of Massa Marittima, one of the most beautiful in Tuscany. And then you understand why, who has been here once, comes back again. ... more   less
